Found growing in the woods edge
Looks a lot like wild lettuce, even has milky sap
( see edge for sap)
(leaf)
The plant is 4 - 5 ft tall


but the plant I am familiar with has yellow flowers , this flower is white with a pale blue tint.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

It looks a lot like a skeleton flower I found growing in the wild here in Texas! Here is a link to one that is in your state!
